Diet Gifts


360 Waterless Cookware

We didn’t believe it until we saw an in-person demo; then we got our own cookware. Honest-to-goodness, you need zero added fat to cook with these pots and pans. It’s brand-new Vapor® Technology that uses the moisture inside the food to cook it fast—and good. Meats brown and taste great. Perfect for calorie-counters. The company “set the standard for green manufacturing in the cookware industry.”

Gourmè Mist:
Balsamic Vinegar & Olive Oil Misters

If Mom has trouble giving up heavier salad dressings, here’s a fun way to add lower-calorie oil and vinegar to salads, cooked vegetables and other foods. These spray bottles “mist” health olive or canola oil and flavorful balsamic vinegar onto salads, cutting back the calories of dripping salad dressings. Available in organic and natural EVOO, organic canola oil, barrel-aged balsamic vinegar, pomegranate balsamic and raspberry balsamic. So much fun that all family members will start eating more salad. The spray is non-aerosol, environment-friendly, without chemical propellants.

Procter & Gamble:
PUR Flavor Options


PUR Flavor Options is the first, and currently the only, water filtration system that allows you to choose flavored or unflavored water by the glass. The flavor cartridges are interchangeable, and are available in Grape, Lemon, Peach, Raspberry and Strawberry—natural flavor with artificial sweeteners (acesulfame K and sucralose—read more about artificial sweeteners), for zero calories. Plus, PUR is a green gift: up to 75 servings per flavor cartridge (as little as $0.07 per glass), so one tiny recycled cartridge equals 75 bottles of flavored water (and costs a lot less). In addition to the pitcher, there’s a faucet filter option. Available at retailers nationwide, there are $7.00 worth of coupons on the company website.

Tea Cocktails

Teaposy makes “blooming teas” from Silver Needle white tea. Handcrafted by artisans in China’s Fujian province, these tea leaves are tied with natural herbal flowers into what appear to be knots; but drop a knot into a tea cup or tea put and the knot “blooms” into a lovely “tea blossom” that flavors your pot of white tea. Teaposy also makes beautiful glass pots and cups to showcase the blossoms.
